Government subsidies for Ethanol dont work. Food prices are going up because of it.

Technology has already driven price for wind energy lower and is baseline competitive with fossil fuels, especially when factoring in externalized costs. The vast majority of the US has shifted or is shifting away from coal while Indiana is still 97% coal dependent. That is a backward energy portfolio and has to be addressed.

People that call the midwest Flyover states really are short minded and ignorant.
why dont we call it New Dork City and call them New dorkers?
Sterotypes cut both ways.
Commiefornia/The Messed up Coasts

I always keep those names in mind incase anyone wants to call the Midwest Flyover country
